    Sorry to hear about your accident Orjan.

    For me, reading pure navigational theory is the easiest cure for insomnia.  I would go for something a bit more adventurous with a strong navigational background.  Ernest K Gann’s ‘Fate is the Hunter’ is a classic.  I was recently given a copy of ‘Ernest K Gann’s Flying Circus’, and it looks like being equally good.  On the maritime side, anything by Alan Villiers is good.  ‘Captain Cook, the Seamen’s Seaman’ is excellent, as is Caroline Alexander’s ‘The Bounty’.  Amundsen’s ‘The South Pole’ is also very interesting.  If you want to amaze your friends by quoting from long forgotten papers you might try looking at ‘The observations of Amundsen and Scott at the South Pole’ by Arthur R Hinks: http://www.southpolestation.com/trivia/igy1/hinks1944southpolepaper.pdf
